I remember sitting in the back of my dad’s Ford Falcon as a kid, occupying myself by looking through a kaleidoscope, watching all the beautiful patterns that appeared and disappeared as I turned it. I still love patterns. On Friday I put a kaleidoscope lens in front of my camera and captured ordinary objects as dreamy multiplied versions of themselves (see video at the bottom of this page:)
On Saturday I visited the Waipara Valley Farmers Market and saw an old primary school buddy, Kate Williams. Kate sells her beautiful watercolour prints at the market every weekend. I loved this strawberry patterned card so I had to buy it! Check out Kate’s website and her Facebook page to see more of her work or go along next weekend to see her at the market!
